new Dismemberment Plan song – “Invisible” – out today

The Dismemberment Plan, the groundbreaking and influential indie rock four-piece, have revealed “Invisible,” the second song off of Uncanney Valley (out 10/15), the group’s first album of new music in 12 years. Says Stereogum, “It’s about moving to a city where nobody knows your name, the fear and the ecstasy of the experience, and it’s beautiful.”

Fans both old and new can catch The Dismemberment Plan on tour this fall, playing festival dates including Riot Fest (Chicago and Denver), Laneway Festival (Detroit), and Fun Fun Fun Fest (Austin) as well as clubs in major cities including New York, DC, Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. The full list of tour dates is below.

In 2003, if you told the members of The Dismemberment Plan that ten years later they would not only be releasing a new album, but their best record to date, there’s no way they would have believed you. Since forming in Washington, D.C. in 1993, the band has released four highly acclaimed full-lengths, toured the world many times over, and become one of the most well respected-and indefinable-acts in indie rock. But the past decade has seen their members exploring other areas both inside and outside of music, and even embracing adulthood. However, along the way something funny happened: They reunited three years ago to play some shows to support the reissue of 1999’s Emergency & I, and realized their most potent magic had yet to be bottled.

Uncanney Valley was recorded by longtime collaborator J. Robbins (Jawbreaker, The Promise Ring) at his Baltimore Studio, Magpie Cage, produced by Jason Caddell and The Dismemberment Plan, and mixed by Paul Q. Kolderie (Pixies, Radiohead), and the result is an album that maintains The Dismemberment Plan’s unique sound while simultaneously allowing them to open up and expand on the foundation of their celebrated back catalog.

This spirit of collaboration paired with the members’ diverse taste and life experiences are what make Uncanney Valley such an enthralling listen-and although the group remains unsure what the future holds for them, the most important thing right now is that they exist here in the moment. Ultimately, whether the members are controlling robots on a space station or performing live with an enthusiasm that transcends age, The Dismemberment Plan are a special band, and Uncanney Valley solidifies that as times change and tides shift, this will always hold true.

Stereophonics return to the US for tour dates

One of the most durable and consistently successful bands ever to come out of the U.K. band scene, Stereophonics return to the U.S. August 20th with the release of their chart topping U.K. album Graffiti on the Train; their eighth studio album, out on their own Stylus Records.

Released earlier this year in the U.K., Graffiti on the Train entered the U.K. charts at number 3 and has remained in the Top 20 ever since. Affirming that this is their best album in a decade, the album has quickly gone gold and is well on its way to platinum status.

Written by lead vocalist and guitarist Kelly Jones and produced by Kelly Jones and Jim Lowe, Graffiti on the Train is the final piece in the puzzle for a newly refined and cinematic Stereophonics, a band that has London’s Sunday Times calling this album their “least conventional yet”, praising its “newfound lightness of touch” and confirming “The album contains Jones’s best work of his career.”

A storyteller first and foremost Kelly Jones unravels storylines and sketches characters with poetic finesse – inspired by the screenplay he has been working on of the same name, Graffiti On A Train is a fascinating, filmic LP unlike anything the group have attempted in the past. Loosely telling the story of two friends who flee the country after a tragic accident, the record is both reflective and surprisingly fragile.

We find Jones at the helm of all the videos from this album, which he has both written and directed including the first U.S. single, ‘Indian Summer.’ Upon release in the U.K. earlier this year, ‘Indian Summer’marked the band’s 26th Top 40 hit on the U.K. charts.

As one of the best live bands imported from the U.K. in the last twenty years, North America will be treated to select tour dates and an Indian Summer to be remembered. At a recent U.K. show, John Earls of the Daily Star noted, “Girls sat on their boyfriends shoulders, Welsh flags were held aloft, beer was thrown everywhere and the singalongs kept coming.”

Having spanned decades of success selling over 9 million career albums and currently sitting at the top of U.K. album charts, this return to the other side of the pond is a tour not to be missed. Their U.S. tour kicks off in Philadelphia on September 19 at Union Transfer. See below for complete tour itinerary.

Stereophonics are: Kelly Jones- vocals/guitar, Richard Jones-bass, Adam Zindani -guitar and Jamie Morrison – drums.

They Might Be Giants On Tour Through Fall, Perform LIVE On ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Brooklyn’s original alternative rockers, They Might Be Giants, have made a valiant return to the US after their recent stint though Australia and New Zealand. The band will take over North American stages once again on a massive 35-date tour in support of their deliriously catchy new studio album, Nanobots. The tour includes a “Celebrate Brooklyn” hometown show as well as stops in Los Angeles, Des Moines, Kansas City, Boise, Seattle, DC & Vancouver.

Fans that are not able to make it out to a show can experience the band’s explosive live rendition of their hit “Istanbul” on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Nanobots features 45 memorable minutes of electrifying pop melodies, vivid lyrics and just enough bass-clarinet. Check out the trippy, animated video for single “Insect Hospital +” by Hine Mizushima HERE.

Nanobots is available at all digital & physical retailers via Idlewild Recordings, and marks the debut offering through the band’s new distributor Megaforce Records. Known for recording numerous themes – most notably The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the GRAMMY-winning Malcolm In the Middle theme – the band has 2 platinum albums, 2 gold albums and have been nominated for 3 GRAMMYs, winning two. Revered for their energized live show and love of the road, catch the band live on tour!

“Perfect pop music can come from anywhere and can go anywhere. They Might Be Giants have demonstrated this for a quarter century…”
– The New Yorker

“Catch them if you can — their live shows always deliver.”
– USA Today

“catchy pop heroics mixed with jingle-length songlets”
– Rolling Stone

“’You’re On Fire” is a catchy and surprisingly toothy power-pop gem”
– Stereogum

“ …echoes Squeeze or their beloved XTC, exploits some pretty dramatic dynamic shifts, and takes a quite literal interpretation of the common idiom.“
– SPIN

Fall Out Boy Spring Tour Dates

So here’s my problem: I’m incredibly nostalgic. And by nostalgic, I mean that I’m still in love with a band that I loved when I was an immature 12 year-old with severe identity issues. The band grew, the fanbase shrunk, and they decided to take a break because they were sick of each other. Then I was in my dorm bed this past winter, and Fall Out Boy was like, “yeah, we might as well make a new album and get back together.” Thanks, boys. Patrick, Pete, Joe and Andy are back at it and they’re going on a sold out tour for all us twenty-somethings fixated on our emotional issues of yesterday. Have most of our readers moved on from emo-pop-punk? Sure, but I know there’s a couple people out there who are at least a little nostalgic.

Fall Out Boy is going out on tour all across the states, and making a few stops up here in Canada. Your city may be sold out, but you never know if the venue will release some last minute holds. MVRemix will hopefully be covering the Montreal date on May 25th and bringing you a review shortly thereafter. Tickets may be available later on evenko’s website right here.

Joy Kills Sorrow new EP (June 4) + song premiere + tour dates

“[The] five-piece Boston string band should make a big splash
on the acoustic-music scene…”—USA Today

“Subtle and snazzy, this new jack acoustic outfit merges bluegrass with jazz like it was the most natural combination in the world.”—Los Angeles Daily News

“…worthy of Grammy consideration.”—Folk Alley

Wide Awake, the highly anticipated new music from praised Boston-based string band Joy Kills Sorrow, will be released June 4 on Signature Sounds Recordings. The 7-song EP follows the ensemble’s sophomore release This Unknown Science (2011) which was lauded by Boston Globe as “on the cutting edge of acoustic,” while Acoustic Guitar describes the band as “accomplished virtuosos, and it shows in every note.” To support the release, Joy Kills Sorrow have confirmed tour dates throughout the summer. See reverse for details.

Joy Kills Sorrows is comprised of founding member Matthew Arcara (guitar), Emma Beaton (lead vocals), Wesley Corbett (banjo, vocals), Zoe Guigueno (bass, vocals), and Jacob Jollif (mandolin). Formed under the banner “a modern American string band,” the group first emerged out of Boston’s thriving folk music scene in 2005, releasing their self-titled debut album in 2007. Having collectively won various musicianship, songwriting and vocal awards, the band is an eclectic mix of musicians who have classical and/or jazz conservatory training. NPR Music hails, “with a foot firmly planted in its bluegrass roots…Joy Kills Sorrow’s influences from the worlds of jazz, pop, swing and rock are clearly felt in its polished arrangements.”

Wide Awake was co-produced by Joy Kills Sorrow and producer Dan Cardinal. Of the new EP, Arcara notes that it “represents new, fuller, thicker sound for Joy Kills Sorrow—we tried to capture the power of the band at full throttle. It’s a sound we have been after for a while…” and Beaton continues the music is “still deeply infused with our traditional roots, but takes one step further into the indie rock realm.” See full track listing on reverse.

The Numerators share new song & tour dates

This week, Suicide Squeeze has released a new 7″ from Texas jangle-psych freaks, The Numerators. You’ve heard “Dead” & now BrooklynVegan is streaming the b-side, “Finally Sees,” for which Noisey has just shared the accompanying video for the track. The Numerators are currently on tour, catch these misfits’ twisted garage psych freakouts this spring.

ABOUT THE NUMERATORS

George W. Bush. Cormac McCarthy novels. Chainsaw massacres. Texas has a reputation for being a grim place. Sure, there’s the rock n’ roll haven of Austin, the metropolitan hubs of Dallas and Houston, and the weird art commune of Marfa. But by and large, it’s a land of dry counties and conservatism. Which makes the demented psych garage of Lubbock’s The Numerators all the more compelling. Western Texas is perhaps the most inhospitable region of the state for a young band of misfits to combine a love of David Lynch’s twisted take on the ‘50s with a requisite dash of Lone Star homage to 13th Floor Elevators, yet somehow The Numerators have managed to thrive under such stark conditions. Now based in Brooklyn, the trio continues to belt out their hallucinatory reverb-drenched garage rock on their latest single for Suicide Squeeze. The “Dead” b/w “Finally Sees” 7” is limited to 500 copies (100 clear, 400 on black) with a free download code and is also available digitally worldwide. Pre order here.

Counting Crows & The Wallflowers Announce National Summer Tour @ NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday, June 27

Fresh off the heels of their Australian and European tour, Counting Crows and The Wallflowers, who just came off a highly successful Eric Clapton arena tour, announced their U.S. summer tour. The 22-stop tour will make its way to Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on June 27th. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 3rd at 10AM at Ticketmaster.com. Each band’s community will have access to tickets through a presale beginning April 25th.

Every ticket purchased will come with a copy of Counting Crows’ new live album Echoes of The Outlaw Roadshow. The album was recorded and mixed by Shawn Dealey, who worked with the band on their latest studio release Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation). Complete track list as follows:

01 – Girl From the North Country
02 – Round Here
03 – Untitled (Love Song)
04 – Four Days
05 – Hospital
06 – Carriage
07 – Start Again
08 – I Wish I Was A Girl

10 – Mercury
11 – Friend of the Devil
12 – Rain King
13 – Le Ballet d’Or
14 – Up All Night (Frankie Miller Goes To Hollywood)
15 – You Ain’t Goin Nowhere

Both Counting Crows and The Wallflowers are dynamic rock bands with fans all over the world and millions in album sales. The relationship between the two bands dates back to 1996 when Adam Duritz lent background vocals to the Wallflowers hit, “6th Avenue Heartache.”

Counting Crows –Adam Duritz (vocals), Jim Bogios (drums), David Bryson (guitar), Charlie Gillingham (keyboards), David Immergluck (guitar), Millard Powers (bass) and Dan Vickrey (guitar) – have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multiplatinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993. Their most recent album, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation), features a collection of 15 gorgeously rendered songs in which the modern rock mainstays honor global icons, indie-pop heroes, compelling up-and-comers and even their own seminal pre-Crows projects. The album was released April 10, 2012.

In the span of their career, Grammy-award winning The Wallflowers have released six studio and one compilation album. Their most recent studio album, Glad All Over, was released on October 9, 2013 after the band – Jakob Dylan (vocals), Rami Jaffee (keyboards), Greg Richling (bass), Stuart Mathis (guitar) and Jack Irons (drums) – announced the end of their hiatus in November 2011.
